Roberts Back to Toronto

Not necessarily a trade rumor, but according to the Palm Beach Post, Gary Roberts has asked the Florida Panthers to trade him back to Toronto. Reason? His 16 year-old-daughter attends a boarding school, but would be left “unsupervised” if Roberts plays in Florida, and his ex-wife moved to Calgary. Wow, such a nice mother!

Mike Keenan is looking to trade Roberts for a minor leaguer, or a draft pick, to create more cap space. With the Leafs rumored to buy out Tie Domi’s contract, Roberts may be a good substitute, unless John Ferguson Jr. wants to send some salary back to Florida.

The Oilers are helping my opinion of them way back before the playoffs. But, will they beat the Ducks?

Why didn’t San Jose win?

Weather forecasters actually predict hurricanes will heat the Northeast, for real!

Also, why hockey is the best game in the world.

Memorial Cup Preview

There will be a new Memorial Cup victor this year. The London Knights were swept by the OHL Champion Peterborough Petes in 4 straight one-goal games (2 in overtime). Gilbert Brule (VAN) and the Vancouver Giants dominated the WHL playoffs and were the first team to win their respective league. The QMJHL crown is still up for grabs but the teams contending for the championship are the Moncton Wildcats and the Quebec Remparts who will both be in the Memorial Cup as Moncton is the host city. I will preview all the teams involved and let you know about the key players.

Lacroix Steps Down

According to various reports, General Manager Pierre Lacroix of the Colorado Avalanche has stepped down as GM, but will remain as President of the team. Ten years of great success, Lacroix will go down in history as one of the best general managers in the NHL.

Big question could arise, however. Will Joe Sakic stay?

Hamilton Back in NHL Mix — The same company that twice tried to bring the NHL to Hamilton, Ont., is now preparing a bid for the Pittsburgh Penguins with the intention of relocating the team.

3-0, 3-0, 3-0, 2-1

Ottawa not so Sensational.

It’s not Duck season in Colorado.

Devils may blame an organization for their losing.

California’s unfriendliness with Oil.

Let's Go Rangers!

And so, we have the first concluded series of this year’s playoffs, and quite possibly the second one tonight if the Ottawa Senators beat John Torturella and his Lightning.

I cheer Let’s Go Rangers!
